Ok, I see no one has yet mentioned the best bass player ever.

Shame on you :)

Ok, ok, I know you all have different taste in bass players, but for me, it's about making purty melodies with the bass, and no one can top Mr. James Jamerson. (Motown)

Yup, lots are more technically developed, but they don't have his ear.

Here's James on the Jackson 5's "Darling Dear": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ND-iW51idC0

Here's James live with Marvin Gaye:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fopc4exF4D0&;feature=related
